I've just purchased one more blueberry bush Sharon which now takes me up to five. (three I'm happy with, the other two are not great quality) All are still only about one foot tall at the moment. I can't use rain water because, would you believe it, I've got no way of collecting it. All gutter down pipes are on my next door neighbours property, garage roof slops the wrong way. I've heard that if you run tap water into a large container and then wait a week or so and chemicals would disappear, so might try that. All are planted up in fresh ericaceous soil topped off with small wood chip bark. I won't use any ericaceous feed until they are a lot more established. Let me know how yours are getting on and hopefully we can exchange some tips and advice.
